Today Show’s Jenna Wolfe Comes Out, Announces She’s Expecting

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Another network news personality has come out! No, not Shepard Smith—weekend Today show anchor Jenna Wolfe announced on today’s episode of the NBC morning show that she and her girlfriend of three years, NBC News correspondent Stephanie Gosk, were expecting a baby.

“I have big news, this is big for me” Wolfe, 39, told Matt Lauer. “I’m actually pregnant — I’m quite pregnant, actually! My girlfriend Stephanie, who works here at NBC— we’re expecting a baby girl in the end of August.”

Wolfe calls creating a family “the adventure of a lifetime.”

In this week’s issue of People, Wolfe explained her decision to be open in her life came from her not wanting “to bring my daughter into a world where I’m not comfortable telling everyone who I am and who her mother is.”

    A big congratulations to the happy couple!

  • Cam

    Congratulations both for starting a family and coming out!

    I am so sick of women who claim to be homosexuals but who then go and have sex with a man for the purpose of having a baby. These women are harming our cause. Fake Iesbians suck.

    I’m so sick of people like Brian, they’d be better off topping themselves as they serve no purpose.

  • Deb

    Happy news all around!

    Fake lesbians suck. Don’t want them in our community.

    At the very least, Jenna Wolfe appears to have exploited a man for his sperm. Women who exploit men are just as bad as men who exploit women.

    I’m a big NBC fan – and especially a TODAY Show fan, and i did NOT see this one coming!

    Wow! All of a sudden people (celebrities of all levels) are coming out – all in the
    shadow of the Prop 8 and DOMA cases!

    I feel like the dams of bigotry and fear-of-retribution are breaking! It looks like
    there will be a FLOOD of “coming out” announcements in the weeks and months ahead.

    Fake Brian’s suck. Don’t want them in our community.

    At the very least, Brian appears to have exploited life despite failing at it completely. Brian’s who exploit life are just as bad as men who join Al-Qaeda.

    If you hadn’t figured out she was a lesbian, you should get your gaydar recalibrated.

  • Brian

    Women represent a danger to the gay rights cause because their sexuality can be faked, unlike a man’s. Women should therefore be kept at arm’s length. Down with pregnant lesbians.

    Brian represents a danger to the gay rights cause because his life isn’t worth living, unlike a human being who isn’t a [email protected], woman hating imbecile. Women should therefore keep at arm’s length from Brian because he attacks them at night down alleys.

    @Brian: Actually, Brian soon you will no longer need be offended by women using sperm banks to get pregnant. Though really sperm aren’t actually men and men volunteer their sperm so they aren’t really being used. Anyway, scientists have managed to create human sperm cells using a female embryonic stem cell. So far, only mice have been experimented on and healthy baby mice have resulted. So very soon no man will be needed. There, now do you feel better?

    @Brian: Listen, you pathetic little pri–

    Nah, never mind. Better things to do with my time.

  • LadyL

    This story makes me happy in every conceivable way–pun actually not intended, I swear!XD

  • MickeyP.

    No surprise,just observation…Brian is an asshole! Of course fake lesbians sleep with men! Artificial insemination is just for REAL lesbians! What a friggen moron!

  • MickeyP.

    And…a man’s sexuality can’t be faked? Tell that to the women who have married men,had kids with them and then the man comes out as gay! No faking there!

    @MickeyP.: hmmmmmm. This dude Brian sounds a lot like a chap that used to comment on here a lot- Jason.
